The Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL - November 15th, 2013

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

Chicago and Florida exchanged players.

The Chicago Blackhawks are bringing back a familiar face.

Late Thursday, the Hawks acquired right wing Kris Versteeg and minor league winger Philippe Lefebvre in exchange for right wing Jimmy Hayes and defenceman Dylan Olsen.

Kadri has been suspended for three games.

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri has been suspended for three games on Thursday after a hit on Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom in Wednesday’s 2-1 shootout loss in Minnesota.

The fourth-year centre is the second Toronto Maple Leafs player suspended in the first six weeks of the National Hockey League season.

At 7:07 of the first period, Kadri skated through the Wild crease and his head shot to Backstrom, a forearm/elbow blow, sent Backstrom to the ice.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and the player's average annual salary, Kadri will forfeit $44,615.37 and the money will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

The Lightning show that the East can beat the West.

Valtteri Filppula and the Tampa Bay Lightning have kept up a strong start even without their leading scorer.

Filppula had two goals and an assist, goalie Ben Bishop won his 13th game this season and the Lightning beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-1 in a matchup of conference leaders Thursday night.
